Strikers
2021
Synopsis:
Every Spring, Illinois’ Affordable Assisted Living Coalition holds a Wii Bowling competition for its member homes, and as the reigning champs of Eden Supportive Living take on their old rivals from Bolingbrook it looks like their championship title might not be as safe as they thought. Though the competition is incredibly fierce, the competition has engendered deep friendships among teams. “Strikers” offers us a funny, heartfelt look at gaming into the golden years.
